Canada is home to some of the most beautiful and distinctive grape and wine regions in North America. From Atlantic to Pacific, there are more than 650 wineries spanning the provinces of Ontario, British Columbia, Nova Scotia and Quebec.
Canada’s wine growing regions are situated within the recognized growing zone of 30° to 50° North latitude, which is shared by many other cool climate wine regions of Europe. While perhaps best known globally for its Icewine, Canada is also home to a full range of premium red, white and rosé table wine, as well as sparkling wines.
The Canadian wine industry’s $9 billion economic impact is a significant driver to the Canadian economy, generating more than 37,000 jobs annually. There are more than 1,750 grape growers operating in Canada with a combined acreage of 31,100 grape-bearing acres, and the country welcomes more than 3.7 million tourists annually to its wine regions.
Pride of place and attention to detail are hallmarks of Canadian winemakers. They celebrate regional diversity and express the best qualities of their appellation in every bottle, proudly showing why Canada’s cool climate wines are among the best in the world.
